romney and paul ryan made a last-minute swing. of course, battle grounds like ohio will decide this race but national presidents show a nation divided right down the middle a sign of how tight this race is, the first vote add midnight in humanitarian was a split vote. 50-50, five for the president and five votes for governor romney. governor romney has just touched down in pittsburgh under the wire campaign stop in a swing state where polls have shown his campaign making recent gains. this morning, the governor and his wife cast their votes near massachusetts home and he left for a final stop in ohio. a reporter asked th how he feels about the all important swing state. >> i feel great about ohio. >>shepard: in ohio, governor romney met up with running mate paul ryan, the governor spent more time in ohio than in any other state and understandably so. the way ohio votes could very well decide the white house. we have team fox coverage. ed henry in chicago with the 39's campaign but first, carl cameron with the romney catch at headquarters in boston. what is the romney camp looking for tod
in a hotel room with the five boys and the grandchildren and paul ryan also here in boston. he's not in the room with the romneys. he and his wife and his mother who has been on the trail with him, they're staying at another hotel here in boston, not far from here but they're watching the returns come in separately. i have reached out to a couple of sources on the campaign and can tell you the night is not over. these states are very close along the east coast, florida, virginia, as i mentioned earlier, they're not ready to certainly concede anything, but they're also not terribly upbeat about the way the night is unfolding. >> to sharyn alfonsi in wisconsin and she's at a republican event there. sharyn? >> reporter: yeah, i'm at a republican watch party that is not feeling very much like a party. you can feel the air kind of get sucked out of the room, but people are still hanging around. they haven't run for the bar yet. they were initially encouraged, the exit polling showing romney actually beat obama with working class voters but then those other voters, young voters comin
ed treatment is right for you. >>> congressman paul ryan is back on capitol hill and talking for the first time about losing his bid for vice presidency. "losing never feels good." >> we were surprised at the outcome. e we knew this was going to be a close race. we thought we had a good chance of winning. it just wasn't enough at the end of the day. i respect the process is done and i congratulate the president on the race. we now have divided government like we did before. the divided government didn't work. we're going to have to make this divided government work. >> and there are new signs that the word compromise may not be such a dirty word in washington. rand paul says he's ready to work with democrats on immigration reform. and a big concession when it comes to taxes. kent conrad says democrats are throwing around mitt romney's idea to raise taxes on the rich by capping deductions. the chairman of the house republican conference says the willingness to all of a sudden work together boils down to timing. according to congressman deb hesterly, compromise works best after
did paul ryan mean when he blamed president obama's victory last week on the urban vote? do you like that word? is he blowing that dog whistle again? this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> here's what's happening. >>> do you think photo i.d. would have made any difference? the outcome of this election? >> yes, i think so. we're looking at all sorts of different precincts and all sorts of same-day registrations. people will go on, we don't have fraud and abuse in our election, but why can't we have voter i.d. when majority of our people in wisconsin want it, the governor signed it. why should one judge in dade county be able to hold it up? >> there you have the problem with the republican party. pay a lot of attention to that what that woman just said, senate senator. that's the state -- state senator wisconsin, i don't know her, served as mitt romney's co-chair in the state and now she's saying suppressing the vote by requiring voter i.d. cards would have made the difference in wisconsin. let's look at the facts. apparently she's not interested in the facts. obama won wiscon
paul ryan is here. we've seen members of his family but what a roller-coaster ride for his supporters, for his donors in this hall tonight. there was such a sense of defeat initially when fox news called ohio for barack obama, but then karl rove came on, started hedging, said it still was in play and people flooded the room and cheers went out handing o out american flags but as the math sunk in all that desflated and have seen children crying and a lot of hugs here tonight as they come to grips with the end of a hard-fought campaign. >> okay, bill weir, thank you very much. i want to go back to cokie roberts as jon karl was saying talking about nancy pelosi, the end of if she, indeed, does choose to retire as the democratic leader, the end of some career. >> an incredible career. she came to congress and having been told by the congresswoman who she replaced on her deathbed she said, nancy, you run for this seat and she did and, of course, rose in the ranks in the house and put together a remarkable majority for a period there and as the first female speaker, you know, you forget tha
entitlement reform they mean paul ryan's voucher. >> that's right. >> gutting it, eliminating it. >> bill: making it voucher care, not medicare. i think democrats have to stop using entitlement reform. there is the question. just getting started with igor volsky from think progress. thinkprogress.org. where you can follow their good work on many, many, many different issues. we'll get into a couple of the others and take your calls at 1-866-55-press. get your comments also on twitter. >> at bp show. hit us there. >> bill: peter has your back. we'll be right back here on today's "full court press." >> announcer: on your radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." now let's hear yours. >> politically direct means no bs, just tellling you what's going on in politics today. (vo) at the only online forum with a direct line to bill press. current.com/billpress we have a big, big hour and the i.q. will go way up. how are you ever going to solve the problem if you don't look at all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host st
the finishing touches on the stage where mitt romney and his running mate paul ryan hope tonight or tomorrow morning to take that podium and declare victory. earlier today, mitt romney and ryan made a joint appearance in ohio meeting with workers and campaign supporters there. what may be one of their last joint appearances of the campaign. mitt romney and his wife voted in belmont, massachusetts. then they kissed each other good-bye. >> i feel great about ohio. >> reporter: romney headed to a last-minute campaign rally in cleveland where his running mate paul ryan joined him. ryan vote for himself twice today in the swing state of wisconsin where he is also running for re-election to congress. later today he will be in pittsburgh, pennsylvania, a state his advisors now say is up for grabs. >> in the last few weeks we have seen pennsylvania the polls there tighten and it becomes a tremendous opportunity. >> reporter: romney and his team hope the enthusiasm surrounding his campaign leads to a big turnout at the polls. i'm randall pinkston, in boston. >> reporter: i'm bigad shaban in chicago.
beside choosing his wife ann, picking paul ryan as a runningmate was the best decision he has ever made. ron, paula. >> a gracious speech. had to be a hard one to make after two years thought of kind of schedule. this is why the battleground states were so important. president obama racked up wins in the highly contested states including colorado, new hampshire, pennsylvania, nevada, wisconsin, and virginia. almost a clean sweep there among the battleground. >> didn't really need ohio. the president holding a slight lead in florida, ballots are still being counted could continue to be counted for a while. the state is too close to call not that it matters. >> few hundred votes separated it. really insane. the popular vote we said incredibly close. president obama, passed mitt romney by a sliver in the nation's popular vote. >> now we don't have final numbers as west coast states are counting ballots including mega state, california. >>> democrats have strengthened their control of the senate taking two seats away from the republicans. the races that changed hand are in the states of ind
turnout is down radically. the republican counties are up. i think paul ryan and frankly people in wisconsin, as you know as a good cheese head, people in wisconsin are very proud of the local boy doing well and i think ryan is likely to help carry the state. my guess is wisconsin will go for romney. >> president bill clinton, we brought up pennsylvania. i thought it unusual that he -- the fact that he was going to pennsylvania for president obama this late was actually case that the obama campaign was not so certain that that is locked up? >> the fact that romney was in bucks county sunday night for a huge rally, i think over 30,000 people, the fact that he's coming back to pittsburgh which we are told is the second biggest area of democrats for romney after north carolina, is a bag indicator. the fact that karl rove's group, he himself said has put $2 million in advertising this week into pennsylvania tells you pennsylvania is a plan. i agree with you," it's smart to send bill clinton is because obama can't help himself. there are though votes there that he doesn't have that a
it a campaign. mitt romney and paul ryan were still out there on the trail today. and we saw mit ryan touch down in pittsburgh. what does it tell you this late in the game, you know, during the game that mitt romney is taking time out to go to western pennsylvania? >> well, the fact of the matter is, just saw david plough, the top political organizer for obama said, look, i don't know why they're going to pennsylvania. they have to win 2/3 of the independent -- independence. democrats outnumber republicans in pennsylvania by over a million. they think it's just a faint and decoy. the republicans will probably say to you no, wait a second. there is a republican governor, both houses are republican. >> but talk about that for a minute. >> yeah. >> a faint -- creating a bluff was two weeks ago. this is election day. virginia is razor thin as it gets. >> why didn't he go tova have? >> i think you should have been the campaign manager, tom. it would have been better to go to virginia, strategically, and the makiavillian sense than to pennsylvania. the odds in pennsylvania are much greater. virginia i

the details. and paul ryan hasn't helped mitt romney a bit in wisconsin. now the congressman may have trouble hanging on to his own house seat. john nichols will join me with that. we'll be right back. or that printing in color had to cost a fortune. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart inkjet all-in-one series from brother. easy to use, it's the ultimate combination of speed, small size, and low-cost printing. >>> thanks for staying with us tonight. four days out, and the state of the race favors president obama. seriously. now if you look at it, it is never a lock, never going to be a lock. but the facts are here, in the swing states offering president obama is a clear path to victory. he's ahead in the polls and he's rising. in ohio, you've got president obama, he's been leading all along, and as you can see in the latest poll, averaged from real clear politics, he still is. this is why mitt romney is desperately campaigning in pennsylvania. it is a hail mary pass because he knows
a narrow lead. paul ryan wind ul up a rally in pennsylvania where the romney campaign is trying to make a late pushed. the combined events of mitt romney and paul ryan will give the campaign in seven different states today. the president also had a whirlwind schedule today going to iowa, ohio, virginia, going to wisconsin as well today. vice president joe biden has two events in colorado, one outside denver, the other in pueblo. the candidates are also taking the fight to the printed page today with duelling op-eds in the "wall street journal." meanwhile back in d.c. this morning president obama at fema headquarters where he met with officials and talked about disaster relief in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> our hearts continue to go out to those families who have been affected and have lost loved ones. that's obviously heartbreaking. but i'm confident that we can continue to make progress as long as state, local and federal officials -- >> so, one critical thing. one critical thing to watch in this very busy final homestretch here, the closing arguments that the candidates are making
, ready for paul ryan. >> you're looking very popular. good to see you, actually. never mind paul ryan. i'm hearing lots of different reports tonight, all the republicans telling me mitt romney's got it in the bag, all the obama people telling me no, no, the president's going to walk it. what is the reality? you're in the area of america that could be utterly crucial. how are you seeing wisconsin, ohio, iowa, that kind of collection tomorrow night, how important will they each be and which one could be the turning point? >> well, all across the midwest it's incredibly important. i have been in each of those states. obviously most of the time here in wisconsin but i was just in ohio the other day with mitt romney. i have been in iowa about a week ago with the governor there. there's huge excitement but here in wisconsin, you know, we had a recall six months ago today, we won by a bigger margin than we did two years earlier and you see the momentum. you saw it again in august when paul ryan was added to the ticket. but you really saw it after that first debate in denver when people here in
rally tonight. this is paul ryan over here, eastern iowa. joe biden. governor romney, the president, if you put them all on, it starts to look like that, you come back out to the map. what you see here is, much of the country, if you live on the west coast, you live up here in the prairie, you live in texas or across the deep south, you're not getting a campaign. they're not coming to see your state unless they're trying to raise money. or unless you happen to be in a tv market that bumps into one of these other states. this is florida, you see a lot of visits. you break it down by candidate, where is the president, this is the i-4 corridor. this is an area i know ari fleischer is interested in. the democrats will win the southernmost counties, will the jewish votes be less. will the president get less because of the dustup with governor romney and israel in the campaign. you won't see the president out here. this is the most conservative republican part of the state. you see them both competing here in the i-4 corridor, where you find independents. vice president and paul ryan, i'l
in the i-4 corridor, where you find independents. vice president and paul ryan, i'll pull out the map as we close the conversation. that's just paul ryan, that's just vice president biden, that's governor romney. and that's president obama. notice the pattern, in the last couple weeks, this is the last two weeks. the last two weeks of this campaign, about nine states have gotten the attention, the rest of you just get to watch. >> thanks very much. we're awaiting speeches as i said by president obama and romney. romney's wrapping up election eve at a rally in new hampshire. he'll be out campaigning tomorrow. jim acosta is there, he joins me now on the phone. what's the mood like within the romney camp tonight? >> i'm sorry i can't get in front of a camera right now. but i have to tell you, the romney campaign has been running behind for a good part of the last six hours or so. mainly because mitt romney has been trying to shake every hand. talk to every overflow crowd. he's giving longer speeches than he normally gives. i have to say, anderson, the mood inside this campaign right now, is se

was also asked about congressman paul ryan's pecking order with the house republicans. let me play what he said regarding where paul ryan the vp candidate, now stands with him. >> congressman paul ryan is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh i wouldn't think so. paul ryan's a policy wonk. >> he's a policy wonk. basically right now i'm still the man. so how does speaker boehner, if he's the man and most reasonable guy in washington how does he get some of the conservatives, including even paul ryan a guy who is newly minted in some way with a little bit of juice, to come along? >> i think if you look at how this will actually unfold you find your answer tamron. the fact of the matter is a very small number of people will negotiate a deal or not. that includes speaker boehner. it includes majority leader reid and the white house. once they come up with a deal whatever it looks like it's going to be subject to an up or down vote. this isn't something you amend and say i'd like to offer an amendment to change that tax bracket. no, no. it's an up or down vote
we have people like paul ryan giving interviews saying he's showing back up in washington, d.c. pretty much the same way he left? >> well, there is clearly a huge division between the two parties on two questions. whether we should raise revenue/how much revenue we should raise, the white house put out a fairly audacious, if not bold number yesterday of 1.6 trillion and the second question which president didn't quite address on friday which i expect to be asked about today, which involves can that amount be done without reverting back to letting the bush tax cuts for the wealthiest expire? i do want to say one quick thing about general petraeus and the investigation. i think it's a completely phony issue in response to what hogan said about whether the president should have been told earlier. the one thing we learned about all scandals from watergate on, what you don't want is the justice department in a very sensitive investigation back-channeling to the white house and telling them about criminal things, i think, if it had gone the other way, the republicans or other criti

(laughter) so they're picking winners and losers. so here is what it is, the republicans appear to have a principlesed stance that government shouldn't pick winners and losers when the government is run by democrats. but when it's run by them, pick away! (laughter) we'll be right back. (cheers and applause) -- cheers plew
paul ryan play in all of this. he is a national figure and said no new taxes and john boehner is going to have to try and lead compromises in his caucus. >> do you see the prom prcompro possible? >> here is the thing. in the olden days i used to say, you know what they are going to end up doing the wrong thing. i know longer think that. i believe they could retreat into their corners. it is into their self interest to get things done. as you looked at the landscape, do you see any likelihood that members will be able to come together and work on climate change and tax reform? >> i do. i'm opt miss triimistic that we go over the fiscal cliff that you better not let us do this that you are going to throw us into a recession next year. they are not crazy. they will act out of some sense of the national interest here. you have to be careful not to isolate the question of tax hikes on the wealthy. you need to put that question into a broader framework. how do we raise revenues. and how do we get spending down through entitlement reform. if the republicans are able to come to the table on so
this. my big question, what role does paul ryan play in all of this. he's pretty far out there a national figure, said no new taxes and john boehner will have to try and lead some compromises in his own caucus with a new national leader. >> do you see compromise as possible? because of the fiscal cliff. >> here is the thing. in the olden days when i covered the congress, i used to say, they will end up doing the right thick. i no longer think that. i now believe they could all retreat into their corners, only thing that gives me hope it's in their own self-interest to get this done. >> it's in everyone's self interest. david, as you survey the landscape of the incoming congress, any likelihood that members will be able to come together, work with the president on immigration reform, climate change, tax reform, entitlement reform? >> i do, anderson. i'm increasingly optimistic we won't go over the fiscal cliff. the sharp drop in the markets today send a clear signal to congress and the president that you guys better not let us do this. that you will throw us into a recessi
to a private voucher system. paul ryan crafted it. women are very much aware of that and know how much that hurts not only themselves, but it hurts their moms, their families. this is a thing where as you said, the war against women is a war on women's economic security as well as swwomen's access to health care. >> there's a calculator that tabulates birth control costs. i found this very interesting. if romney wins this election, an 18-year-old uninsured woman would pay just over $99,000 over the course of her child baring years for birth control. a 30-year-old uninsured woman on the pill would pay over $57,000. an insured 25-year-old would pay almost $13,000. why don't the republicans admit this is an economic issue for women? >> they have really gotten away as portraying this as a lifestyle issue that it's something that only pertains to affluent women that'ser merely a matter of freedom. but one of the things that's happened that's good for democrats and women is we have started to talk about this economic issue. we realize that it's not just the price of contraception, but when w
tired, i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one. when i'm elected the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. >> this was the second of four events romney had scheduled for today. next up for the republican candidate is pennsylvania. so america has 50 states, but it's the key battleground state where is the race just might be decided come tuesday. right now cnn estimates that nine states shown here on the make or break states. president obama or 34mitt romne to wing the who is. there's to the all important state of ohio with 18 electoral votes. virginia is one of those key battleground states as well. it's a state that favored barack obama back in 2008, but now the state's electoral votes are very much up for grabs. joining us from bluemont, virginia. virginia jones, what is on the minds of people there in virginia other than that pumpkin smashing you have been seeing all day at great country farms? >> that's right, fredericka, we have been here watching people
. nobody picked paul ryan. nobody knew the momentum was going to swing on the first debate. so all we can do is expect the unexpected. i think that stay tuned, it will be very anti-climatic for this to go as planned. >> ben smith, where do you think the real battleground will be? a lot of people are talking about ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the democrats still saying it could not go romney's way, all these things could be pivotal to how the election washes up. where will you be focused tomorrow night? >> look, mitt romney has -- obama has a lot of paths to victory. romney has very few. they will be states like virginia, florida. if obama wins those states, pretty much over. romney needs to run the table and do well in ohio and pennsylvania. those are must-wins for him. >> charles, when you look at both campaigns from start to finish, what do you think has run the better campaign? >> i think that this campaign has been what most campaigns are, a series of ups and downs for both sides, and so there have been some performance issues and the first debate was a performance issue for barack ob
international union and senator brown on the new campaign for the middle class. paul ryan is finally speaking, and he's still in the bubble. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas. >> ohio state senator turner is here to respond. the petition to see seed is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree with rick perry. texas is not allowed to leave the union. thanks for watching. president obama came back to washington to fight for fair deal on taxes. today he called on his base. i love it. he went right to the folks who put him in the white house. president obama held his first official closed door meeting with groups from outside the white house. the invited guests were all leaders of labor organizations and progressive think tanks. compare this list to the guest list for tomorrow's meeting. 12 of the most powerful ceos in american business. this schedule was not a mistake. president obama was letting the middle class and the workers of this country know, you come first! aflcio president is confident the pr
better to say it any way. the man who came in second place for vice president this year is paul ryan. paul ryan, go. >> some of the turnout. some of the turnout in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> president obama won reelection because of high turnout in urban areas. that's what paul ryan says presumably because it makes him feel good to think that's must be what happened. here's what we know. nbc news reporting that in the swing states, president obama did as well as democrats usually do in urban areas. so he did well there, but pretty much par for the course. if you look at the eight swing states the president won, president obama did only marginally better in some of them. two states, he actually did worse. florida was the only state where there was a significant increase. just florida. a state the president didn't even have to win in order to win the election. so paul ryan's theory about how and why they lost, the surprise urban turnout might make him feel better about what happened, but it doesn't explain why. okay. now it's

and all. i would say that i think as far as cutting spending goes, someone like paul ryan, being in the white house, much better bet that having will we have have the last four years. very serious. of course he and mitt romney but have to corral a congress that does not seem to agree on anything. as we know, both parties think that spending is very seductive, but they have to do something, and that think it is a better bet for mitt romney in paul ryan. i would say entitlements, whoever gets in, romney said he will repeal obamacare. also, don't forget supreme court appointments. we could have two justices stepping down. that would be a huge, huge response ability for the next president. gerri: ed, i would give you the last word. what will we be watching for? what will be most telling about how the selection might go? >> early evening, having a lottery ticket. if romney was florida and virginia and north carolina, he's on his life. if he loses any of those three them there is a very long night and the probability is not great gerri: florida, virginia, north carolina. i have my list
